Passage Choiseul paris

Passage Choiseul is a very accessible passage in the centre of Paris, just a few minutes from rue de l’Opera.

It is a must-visit place once you have seen all the famous sights.

For an experience of old-fashioned Paris, a stroll along the Passage is not to be missed.

Even if you’ve never been to Paris before, it’s easy to drop in, so make time to visit and see for yourself.

What is Passage?

Passages can simply be described as covered loopholes or shopping streets.

The first passages in Paris are said to have been created in 1784 during the redevelopment of the Palais-Royal.

The great popularity of the passages in the Palais-Royal led to the creation of many more in Paris, especially on the Right Bank.

Passage Feydeau, created in 1791, is said to be the first passage except for the Palais-Royal.

Passages, which were busy in the 19th century, have largely disappeared due to the influence of department stores, etc., and today only a dozen or so are said to remain.

As it was night time, there were few shops open, but I got the impression that there were many shops that could be used on a daily basis, such as beauty salons, clothing and general merchandise shops.

Passage Choiseul, which we have introduced, is easily accessible from rue de l’Opéra and is a highly recommended tourist attraction.

This time we visited a little late in the day, so many shops were closed, but during the day, many shops are open, so you can fully enjoy a stroll.

Also, if it’s raining and you’re not sure where to go, a tour of the passages is recommended.

One of the attractions of the Passage is that you can stroll around without an umbrella.

If you have the time, you can also explore the Passage, which we introduced in our last issue, for even more fun.
